Month of Young Musicians
The Month of Young Musicians is a project organised by the Transylvania State Philharmonic in order to promote young talents, at the beginning of their musical career or already recognized as great values, from Romania and abroad (Israel, Turkey, Republic of Moldova and Germany). Five symphonic and vocal-symphonic concerts and one recital are waiting for all the music lovers to enjoy a unique musical experience in 2015, in Cluj-Napoca.

The Month of Young Musicians begins on the 23th of January with a concert conducted by Janko Zsolt, one of the most known young conductors from Transylvania, currently the Permanent Conductor of the Hungarian Opera House in Cluj and of the Oradea Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as the Assistant Conductor of the Budapest Festival Orchestra in Hungary. The artists of this concert are the violinist Francesco Ionaşcu and the soprano Egyed Apollónia. Their performance includes Franz Liszt's Les préludes, Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op. 77 by Dmitri Shostakovich and the famous work Stabat Mater by Francis Poulenc.

The all four Brahms's symphonies will be performed on the Transylvania State Philharmonic stage in the course of two concerts, the first on the 30th of January and the second on the 6th of February. The conductor of these great and complex symphonies is the 29-year-old Israeli artist Daniel Cohen, a young and brilliant artist who impresses every audience with his charismatic gestures and boundless enthusiasm, an extremely watchable presence on the podium. Listen to his invitation:

The month continues with another long awaited performance on the 13th of February. Hailed as "one of Europe's most talented young conductors", Mihail Agafiţa has conducted over 500 symphonic concerts, operas and ballet performances in twenty years of artistic activity. Along with the Orchestra of the Transylvania State Philharmonic and another two talented young artist, the violinist Vlad Răceu and the bass-baritone Andrei Otean from the Republic of Moldova, Mihail Agafiţa is preparing Richard Strauss's Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D minor, Op. 8 and Symphony No. 13 'Babi Yar' by Dmitri Shostakovich.

The outstanding piano duo Sivan Silver - Gil Garburg returns on the stage of the Cluj Philharmonic on the 20th of February with the interpretation of the Concerto for Two Pianos by Bohuslav Martinů. Praised for their "lyric sensitivity, extraordinary inner perception and overwhelming technical mastering", the two young Israeli pianists combine their talents in extraordinary performances. The evening ends up with Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 3 în E flat major, Op. 55, known as the 'Eroica'. The conductor of this concert is Isin Metin, also an UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador (named in 2009 by UNICEF - Turkey).

The string quartet is to chamber music what the symphony is to the orchestra: the most popular and prestigious form. After five concerts, the Month of Young Musicians challenges you to discover also the chamber music, in the Recital of the Transylvanian Quartet, a famous ensemble of the Transylvania Philharmonic. Together with the four members of the Quartet, the famous young cellist Răzvan Suma will perform quartets and quintets signed by Beethoven and Franz Schubert. The recital is held at the Studio Hall of the "Gheorghe Dima" Academy of Music on the 26th of February.
